The Stop & Shop Supermarket Co. LLC officially celebrates the opening of its second Nantucket, Mass., location Friday. The new store, located at 9 Salem St., formerly was a Grand Union store. Stop & Shop acquired the lease in March. The store is located downtown, just blocks from the ferry, and will be managed by Dick Clifford.
“Stop & Shop is proud to be a long-term member of the Nantucket community,” said Joe Kelley, president of the Stop & Shop New England Division. “We are thrilled to open our new store, and to expand our product offerings and great customer service to the island. This additional location will help us better serve the needs of Nantucket residents and visitors alike.”
The new store will feature full-service meat, seafood and deli departments, fresh produce as well as an expanded organic and natural section. The store also will include specialty and kosher foods, a selection of gourmet cheeses and an olive bar.
